FS#9280 - fix "make tar" for BSD tar compatibility

The “make tar” target uses tar -u to update an existing tarfile. This doesn’t work however with BSD tar if the tarfile doesn’t exist yet, and the Makefile explicitly removes the tarfile initially (so why use -u anyway?). Changing -u (update) into -c (create) makes this compatible with both GNU and BSD tar (tested on NetBSD with both versions of tar).

Fix committed to SVN, including the necessary changes.

“tar -c” is not the proper solution since $ziptool may be called twice (when including fonts).

As agreed on IRC, it would be better to modify to call $ziptool only once.
